Reducing the Regulatory Burden: Recommendations for FDA’s Proposed Food Safety Rule Open Access
In January, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published a proposed rule, Standards for the Growing, Harvesting, Packing, and Holding of Produce for Human Consumption, establishing minimum standards for the safe growing, harvesting, packing, and holding of produce. Our examination of the proposed rule and supporting analysis reveals that the proposal does not meet the statutory and executive requirements nor does it consider unintended consequences that may result from the proposed safety standards; and the estimates used to support the benefits of the rule are based on unreliable data.
